For well over 3 decades, Rudy Kizer has been a champion of music and artists as a DJ and producer. Coming of age in the Chicago area, he was inspired by the legendary "Hot Mix 5" radio mixers and started spinning records in his bedroom and eventually began performing various mobile and club gigs (often slipping in house music classics he heard from the radio). While at Purdue University, Rudy got his own turn on the air at WCCR, playing an eclectic format for a discriminating college audience. An engineering student, his interests soon progressed from DJ to producer. He started a multimedia production company during the late '90s internet boom and produced, recorded, mixed, and mastered a wide array of sessions, including band and vocalist demos, electronic musician projects, and video soundtracks.

From 2000-2006, he was a contributor and the primary producer for WRZX's "Planet X" radio program (hosted by Jonathan Keith). He assisted in hosting Planet X's "SPACE" events at Eden nightclub, bringing some of the hottest national and international DJ talent to perform in Indianapolis for the first time. As a DJ himself, Rudy has opened for a plethora of national touring headliners. As host and producer of "Hit The Decks" from 2007-2012, he applied his seasoned ear for good music and years of eclectic programming experience to concoct a floor-moving mix of electro-house, breaks, dubstep, and drum-and-bass.

This set is a recreation of his opening set for the Ill.Gates/KJ Sawka Bass Invaders tour stop at the Mousetrap from 2/9/2017. Promoter Matt Ramsey said "it's time to give these kids a history lesson", so Rudy went crate-digging to pull together a selection of tunes that span 25 years and various styles of jungle, drum and bass, and modern bass music. Enjoy!
